The World List of Natural Sites of Tourist Attraction

The massive dormant volcano of Mount Paekdu lies on North Korea’s border with China and is home to the world’s largest crater lake. The mountain is sacred for its mythological position as the place where the Son of the Lord of Heaven came to earth to begin the first Korean kingdom. Much more recently, it has been claimed as the mystic birthplace of the recently deceased Dear Leader, Kim Jung-il.
